    Another vote here to stay away from the MTR's. Worst tires I've ever run.
    Wouldn't balance at all, sidewalls surprisingly weak, didn't grip for shit on anything.
    I'd probably run a Chinese tire before buying these again.

    This ^^^^^

    Without question, the MT/R with Kevlar are the worst tires Iíve ever run. I real shame too being that they look so cool.

    Iíd light myself on fire before I ran another set of MT/R. Ran them on my land cruiser and among them being impossible to balance, they chunked easily and I cut two sidewalls in an area where Iíd never had an issue before running my BFGís. Mileage was also terrible. Look into the coopers. Trail tested. Tough as nails, priced right and youíll get good mileage out of them if you do your part.

    Well, that statement should make a potential buyer's decision very easy if they're considering this tire.

    Just trying to do my public duty That being said I did like my Nitto trail grapplers or at least until they started to wear and develop a radial pull but that could have just been due to how that particular set wore.

    I was impressed when I put my used Trail grapplers on my new Slabs and didn't need any balancing. I've also beat the shit out of them with no issues.

    Was also looking into the Mud Grapplers, really like the look. Anybody have an experience with these or any advice?

    ☝️ This. I was going back and forth between them for my 37s. I think the Muds are better for icy roads, but my Jeep is loud enough as it is and I didn't wanna give my wife any more excuses to hate riding in it. 🤣

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
